    I worked at McDonald's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are very competitive and offer a wide range of compensation from salary, time off, etc. They are also very flexible.

    Cons

    Dependent upon location and individuals within the specific location. Lack of knowledge and passion of workforce is something I noticed at my location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more certain of who you're hiring and training. Seemed to have a high turnover rate at my location. Management seemed to train people for high management positions which they left very early.

    I have been working at McDonald's

    Pros

    Flexable scheduling. Easy to climb the career latter. But it takes a lot of teamwork and control to run the store at times.

    Cons

    Peaks are stressful. Being understaffed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not let the staffing ratio fall. When the store is short and there no one to call it we have more crew get frustrated and quit

    Pros

    I met some pretty cool coworkers, learned about customer satisfaction and how to cooperate at a team.

    Cons

    You don't get paid enough to deal with everything that goes on in this environment. We work all day everyday and don't get the appreciation we deserve.

    I worked at McDonald's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Minimum wage, it's a paycheck and that's about it. If it is your first job you will get an introduction to being a surf.

    Cons

    Poor quality food that makes customers sick and no advancement opportunities worth pursuing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise wages.

    Pros

    Got money, that was literally the only part I enjoyed

    Cons

    Boss would yell constantly, I was never able to eat McDonald's food either, barely got any time scheduled, once had stuff stolen form me while I was working, and the worst part was that everyone who was there hated being there
